At Home with Sophia: Redskin fudge

By Sophia Carlini - 19 December 2015 7

Last weekend I reviewed The Fudge People at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston. I have to say, the response was overwhelming. I was also very surprised to see how many people LOVE fudge.

There was a lot of talk around my article, in fact, that night when I was at a friend’s wedding, one of their guests raised it at the dinner table. Before I knew it, the whole table was talking about fudge. In what I think was an attempt to change my mind about fudge, one guest shared his recipe for Redskin fudge that you actually make in your slow cooker. As you can imagine, the table was in awe. So I thought for this week’s At Home with Sophia, I would share the fascinating Redskin fudge recipe with all you fudge lovers.

Ingredients:

10 Redskins

200ml condensed milk (or half a can)

200g white chocolate

Method:

Unwrap the Redskins and place in a medium sized saucepan, along with the condensed milk and white chocolate. Melt down the ingredients on medium heat, stirring consistently, until the mix is smooth.

Carefully pour the mix into a small bowl lined with baking paper. Place in the fridge to set. This should only take an hour or so.

Take the set fudge from the fridge and remove from the bowl. Peel back the baking paper and place the fudge on a chopping board. Slice into pieces.

And there you have it! Redskin fudge – super easy to make.

You will notice that I didn’t use a slow cooker. There are a number of recipes on Google that show you how to make it in a slow cooker, but to be honest, I just didn’t want to wait. Cooking the fudge on the stove took me about 10 minutes, instead of waiting an hour for the slow cooker. The choice is yours though!

Even though fudge isn’t my favourite food, I still tried and I was pretty impressed that it tasted just like Redskins. I was also quite chuffed at how well it turned out. I took the batch to work and shared it with my colleagues, who all absolutely loved it and have asked me for the recipe. So here it is: Enjoy!

What’s Your opinion?

You mean they’re still allowed to sell Redskins? I thought they would have gone the same way as Golliwog biscuits.

The labelling appears to have a space between red and skins whereas the name of the sporting team in the USA which is under attack by the PC crusaders is one word, Redskins.
In Australia, the terminology blackfella and whitefella is still used and no one seems to be offended by it.
Indeed, the blackfellas use it frequently.

They used to have an native american on them, but noticed its no longer there.

It’s that “we demand to be offended” mob at work again.

Made this tonight – OMG WOW! Thanks so much for posting the recipe. I’m going to be a popular aunty when I show up with this on Christmas day! 😉

Nope, spoke too soon – mine didn’t set properly. It’s still very squishy. Thinking I might have to add more chocolate or something. Not sure what happened…I even used the same brands that you did for the ingredients! Disappointed. 🙁

Try some WD-40.
